BBX Capital Inc. Donates $150,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Broward to Bolster Community Development Efforts

The funds will go towards building townhomes in Coral Springs.

Habitat for Humanity of Broward and BBX Capital Inc. celebrated a significant milestone in their partnership as BBX Capital contributed an additional $150,000 to construct the new Coral Springs Community development. This generous contribution will fund a home for a Habitat family and further accelerate Habitat Broward’s ongoing construction efforts.

The on-site ceremony at Coral Springs Development brought together significant figures from two organizations, showcasing the spirit of collaboration that has fueled their joint mission. The event was attended by Alan Levan, Chairman of BBX Capital; Jarett Levan, President/CEO of BBX Capital; Nancy Robin, CEO of Habitat Broward; Marcia Barry-Smith, Board Member of BBX Capital; Seth Wise, EVP of BBX Capital; Lois Marino, Executive Director of BBX Capital Foundation, along with Habitat Broward staff, supporters and volunteers.

BBX Capital’s additional contribution demonstrates the company’s commitment to addressing the community’s pressing need for affordable housing. The funds will be used to aid the construction of homes directly in the Coral Springs Community Project, which will improve the lives of local families and lead to a more resilient community. BBX Capital has continuously supported Habitat for Humanity and has prioritized affordable housing as a critical pillar of their company. In line with this mission, Jarett Levan, the President & CEO of BBX Capital, and Seth M. Wise, the Executive Vice President and President of BBX Capital Real Estate, who is also the CEO of The Altman Companies owned by BBX Capital Real Estate, founded Altman Living to respond to the growing demand for affordable housing in the community. Altman Living aims to provide accessible and affordable properties to individuals and families across the economic spectrum.

“This remarkable partnership with BBX Capital exemplifies the power of businesses coming together to make a meaningful impact on the lives of our neighbors,” Nancy Robin says, CEO of Habitat Broward. “With this generous contribution, we are one step closer to realizing our vision of a thriving, inclusive community where everyone has a decent and affordable place to call home.” 

Habitat Broward is working towards constructing 60 affordable homes in Broward County with a budget of $20 million. As part of this goal, they are expected to complete the Coral Springs 13-townhome community by late 2024.

“BBX and our family of companies are excited to support Habitat once again with this new project in Coral Springs – the new townhouse development,” Jarett Levan says, president and CEO of BBX Capital. “This is our 55th home that our family of companies have donated and handed over keys to homeowners. Every home is special, this is the first in Coral Springs, so it makes it even more special, we are just thrilled to be a part of it.” 

BBX Capital, Inc. (OTCQX: BBXIA) (PINK: BBXIB) is a Florida-based diversified holding company whose principal holdings include BBX Capital Real Estate and The Altman Companies, BBX Sweet Holdings, and Renin.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
